Boehner Blames Obama For Drought

House Speaker John Boehner apparently blames President Obama for the massive drought that has swept across the U.S. and wiped-out crops in most central states. TPM’s “Livewire” reports Boehner made a post to his office Website and made a statement in a Financial Times story that Obama “continues to blame anyone and everyone for the drought but himself”.

Why not? Supposedly the President of the U.S. directly controls gas prices and unemployment, so why not the weather, too?

 

Drought Wipes Out Almost All Of U.S. Corn Crop

The historic drought that has caused the federal government to declare approximately 1,000 U.S. counties disaster areas has destroyed almost the entire 2012 corn crop. Not only will this drive up the cost of Doritos, but also of eggs, milk, cheese, beef, pork, chicken, and fuel. Because these days we aren’t just feeding our farm animals corn, we’re feeding it to our vehicles, too.

So when you spend $60 for a supreme with two kinds of cheese and mushrooms, thank the people who have stood in the way of doing something about global climate change for the past thirty years. That would be most world leaders, almost all corporations, and every Republican on the planet. Of course they won’t be bitching – they’re mostly rich, except for the Republican rank and file: they’re just dumb.
